Octopus Tap Edges Closer to Namesake
We remember a million times in college when we'd be at a house party waiting in line for a beer and we'd think "Man, there's got to be a quicker way to get the beer out of this damn keg!" Actually, that's a bit of a lie. We'd usually wait in line and try to make eye contact with pretty girls, get Shaq'd and drink away our sorrows. But if we hadn't been so distracted we probably would have been coming up with clever ways to up the line speed.
The gents over at Octopus Tap have beat us to the punch by adding more lines to your tap, so you can have up to four people serving beer at once and minimizing the wait by - quick math here - four fold. Our original Octopus Tap coverage last September was in the dark ages when they only had three lines on there...we look back on those days and just laugh. Just think...four more arms and it'll be a true Octopus...or you could just buy two we suppose. Maybe soon we'll have beer kegs with hundreds or thousands of taps and we'll be beer gods! Or, maybe not - either way you can read on for more info about the Octopus Tap from their press release.
Look Ma -- Four Hands! New Beer Dispensing Company Releases its Inaugural Product Line
Brew Innovations (BI), LLC, a new company developing innovative products for beer dispensing, today unveiled the Octopus Tap, a revolutionary concept in picnic pump taps. This Patented product allows up to 4 beers to be poured simultaneously from one standard keg of beer.
Lafayette, CO (PRWEB) July 24, 2006 -- Brew Innovations (BI) LLC, a new company developing innovative products for beer dispensing, today unveiled the Octopus Tap, a revolutionary concept in picnic pump taps. This Patented product allows up to 4 beers to be poured simultaneously from one standard keg of beer.
"The Octopus Tap completely changed the dynamics of a recent large party," said Tyra Forbes, a professional in the restaurant industry. "This new tap stopped the bottle neck at the keg, which allowed the party to spread out more evenly. It really made the party much more enjoyable."
The Octopus Tap was designed to more efficiently dispense beer from a keg. It comes in two styles, a 3 hose (shown below) and 4 hose tap. The tap works like any standard picnic pump, pressure is applied to the keg by the hand pump and beer is poured from 1, 2, 3, or 4 faucets at one time. Parts are also available to connect this tap to CO2 to eliminate pumping.
Potential users of the product are hosts of social events where people normally are waiting to pour themselves a beer. Additionally, caterers, beer distributors, liquor stores, and tailgaters could use or rent this product to provide better service to their customers, and sell more beer. The Octopus Tap is available online and soon at your keg retailer.
